Never Apologize

There are two types of apologies:

  1. An apology for what you did
  2. An apology for what you are

Sometimes the first type of apology is appropriate. Sometimes what you did was wrong, or thoughtless or self-indulgent and it hurt someone. You could have chosen differently.

But the second type apology is never appropriate.

It is wrong to apologize for something beyond your control. And it is wrong for anyone else to expect it.

Never, never, never apologize for what you are.
